Why so chic?
Why travel experts chose this hotel
Only when you book with Chic
Tucked away in the trendy Jordaan district sits the just as trendy Mr Jordaan, a boutique hotel spread across a couple of canalside townhouses. From the designer light fittings and retro furnishings, to the exposed brick walls and beamed ceilings, this Chic Retreat is effortlessly cool.
It’s hip ambience isn’t confined to its’ décor; the hotel holds a rather intriguing history too. Decades ago, a certain Mr Jordaan started to hire his couch to travellers, before expanding to a room, and then a luxe hotel. Today, couch-surfing at this unique city hideaway is a thing of the past, but the hotel founder’s warmth and welcoming nature has not budged.
Fuel your day with the hotel’s continental breakfast, which features great coffee, several Dutch specialities and local produce. While there is no restaurant at the hotel, you’re spoilt for choice nearby.
The 34 rooms come in all shapes and forms, making the most out the townhouses’ nooks and crannies. Some feature characterful sloped ceilings or loft-style wooden beams, while others are decked out with floor to ceiling windows. Décor is chic too, with cool tones and the occasional quirky headboard or artwork. It’s worth noting that, in keeping with many Amsterdam townhouses, rooms can be a little on the small side, so if you like room to spread out we’d recommend upgrading.
You’re in a great part of the city here, just a shimmy away from the Jordaan’s bevy of great bars and clubs. During the day time, you’ll find many vibrant shops and artsy boutiques to browse, not to mention plenty of cafés, bakeries and restaurants.
The key sights are within easy reach here too; just a short stroll will take you to the Anne Frank Museum, while the Museum Quarter can be reached either on foot or, if you’re not feeling up to it, by tram.
